PCG YOUTH MINISTRIES
Dear Talent Expo Contestant,
Discover! I love this word. I use it in the mission statement for my life. I always say it
this way. Discover God, Impact journeys and Inspire others to do the same. That first
word, discover, lays out the first step in our life pursuit of God. We have to discover
Him. Find out what He is all about. In the process He shows us what we are all about.
Every year in the fall, hundreds of teens and kids from all across America begin to
prepare themselves to compete in District Teen Talent Expos, hoping for the chance to
compete in the National Teen Talent Expo. Through the opportunity presented by the
National Talent Expo, students discover and develop their God-given talents, and take
on the Great Commission given us to reach your world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
You will dedicate yourself to endless hours of preparation, writing, sculpting, developing
and practice to use your talents for His glory.
Lying within each one of you is a great desire to be a disciple of Christ that uses the
extent of your talents and to run the race God has laid out for you, ever reaching for that
prize (I Corinthians 9:24). We should not desire just an award of excellence, that is only
earthly and will eventually pass away, but we do desire a prize that is worthy of laying at
the feet of Jesus in humble praise.
I thank you for your commitment to run this race and use your talents for God.
The National Talent Expo program can be a truly rewarding experience for you. District
and National levels offer to you incredible opportunities for personal growth, the
opportunity to develop new friendships, the development of your talent(s) all while
helping you to mature spiritually.
If you should have any questions concerning the National Talent Expo program, your
Instruction Manual or opportunities available through the Expo, please contact our
National Youth Ministries Office at 417-624-7050 x352 or [email protected] Remember, all
the latest updates and information can be found on our website at www.impactym.com.
Remember, it is for His glory that we perform using our talents. Discover your gifts,
develop them, and then use them to change our world for Christ!
Impacting Journeys,
Joe Skiles
National Youth Ministries Director

STATEMENT OF OBJECTIVES AND PURPOSE
Since it’s beginning in 1987, the National Teen Talent Expo has been one of the
fastest growing ministries of the Youth Department. Teen Talent Expo has been
the vehicle for teens to develop their talents toward their full potential for Christ.
Teen Talent Expo seeks to achieve the following objectives:
1. To involve PCG youth in developing abilities and talents for the glory of
God.
2. To motivate teenagers to utilize their abilities in the ministries of the PCG.
3. To provide evaluative data on performances which may serve as a guide
for development of talents and skills for the glory of God.
4. To motivate teenagers to develop their personal relationship with God.
5. To provide opportunities for teenagers to develop relationships with other
youth in the PCG.
The Purpose of this manual is to provide a resource that will enable teens to
know what to expect when entering the Teen Talent Expo. Since the Expo is
expanding each year, it is probable that this manual will be updated with
additional information. It is your responsibility to check with our National Youth
Department website (www.impactym.com) to receive the most current
information available. An attempt will be made to answer all questions regarding
various aspects of Teen Talent Expo.
This manual has also been developed to set forth principles for developing
talents for the Lord. It is our prayer that God will bless you as you develop your
talents in ministry for Him and use this manual to help prepare you for service in
His Kingdom.

through learned and rehearsed skill.
b. The music should be within the appropriate limits of the participant’s
range.

C. SUGGESTIONS FOR ENTRIES
Hints: Read over the judging sheets before writing. Judges look for
stories and poems that are original and imaginative yet still believable.
Because of space limitations, it is important to make each word count and
contribute. Begin your entry with a strong opening statement or paragraph
and end with a strong closing statement. Quotes are a good way to
support a thesis but use them sparingly; the judges want to hear what you
have to say. Watch carefully for spelling, grammar, and punctuation
errors.
1. Read the article aloud, rapidly, as if you were reading someone
else’s work. Ask: Is it interesting? Is it significant? Are there
any blind spots? Does it have rapport?
2. Read the article a second time. Ask: Is the article logical?
Does the ending tie to the opening? Can I tighten sentences?
Can I improve word choice? Are transitions clear?
3. Read the article again. This time probe deeper. Ask: Is the

with a direct statement or fact, a question, an attention-getting
statement, an anecdote, a quotation, or an analogy.
2. The End – Objective: One thought stamped in the reader’s mind.
End with a brief summary, a generalization which restates the idea
in different words, a dramatic ending or a message in a nutshell (if a
poem).
3. The Body – Objective: Giving the major idea. Are the paragraphs
in logical sequence? Are transitions smooth from each paragraph?
Are the verbs alive? Do the sentence lengths vary? Does the
sentence structure make sense? If a poem, is the rhyme smooth
and flowing, if used? Are poetic devices accurate and lively? Are
words fresh or trite? Can you express in one sentence what the
poem is trying to say? Does the poem convey emotion?

lead interesting? Is it interesting and relevant? Are action verbs
used? Does it have a suitable end?
4. Read the article again. Verify quotations, facts, spelling,
punctuation, etc.
5. Now ask someone you trust to read the article. Ask them to be
honest with you. Watch for their initial reaction. If the article
doesn’t grab the reader, find out why.
6. Read the article again. Make sure sentences are not too long.
Break long sentences with three or four word sentences. Make

#18
Drama
Both areas of concentration
1. Theatrical Drama division was originally designed to develop the theatrical
skills in an individual, not that of a group. The “role” or “character playing”
is truly what theatrics is all about. While a small group may have a theme
to convey a message, most of the theatrics are lost in presentation.
Theatrics is designed for acting out portions of scripts already written, or
short original scripts. These may be of Biblical characters or scenes.
They may also be scenes from production.
2. Human video was originally intended to act out the message of a song.
3. Drama is the method by which characters relate to one another.
Therefore, it is important that the drama be a convincing portrayal of
characters. All the elements of speaking apply to acting (except maybe in
Mime): gestures, movement, voice inflection and rapport. The key word
to drama is believability. To create good drama, study people’s reaction to
things they hear, and work toward a natural reflection in your characters.
It is important that the primary objective is ministry, not just to entertain.

3. Technique: rhythmic accuracy; use of articulation; steadiness of tempo.
4. Interpretation: understanding of composition; style/expressive marks;

5. Presentation: stage deportment; posture; poise; ministerial effect.
C. SUGGESTIONS FOR ENTRIES
1. Effective stage presence is important in the ministry of music. Good
stage presence transforms stage fright into confidence. This becomes
possible when the instrumentalists define their purpose as performing
for God’s glory. This gives the listening audience and judges the
impression that the musician is delighted to minister.
2. The selection and arrangement of music is a significant factor.
A. This area was designed to feature instrumentalists working
together for harmony. The design is to develop the “dynamics”
of music through learned and rehearsed skill. The performance
should feature each instrument during the performance as well
as “symphony.” No vocals will be allowed during the
performance.
B. The music should be within the proper extremes of the
contestant’s instrumental range.
C. The choice of music should be appropriate for setting with a
focus on ministry.
D. It is better to perform an easier selection well than to perform a
difficult selection poorly. The quality of a contestant’s
performance is paramount to the level of difficulty of their
selection.
3. Interpretation refers to the personal touch the contestant brings to the
music. Style refers to the distinctive manner the composition is
performed giving it personality.
4. Phrasing in music corresponds to sentences in speech. The
contestant should strive to phrase naturally and seek for the music to
flow. Phrasing also refers to the ability to know where to accent (a
more full sound, more crisp, or in a softer tone.)
5. Tone results when strings, drumheads, etc. vibrate. The goal for good
quality is to produce a tone that is clear and full.
6. Intensity projection refers to the prominence of the piece. Finger
dexterity is used in judging instrumentals. Is the musician using the
fingers smoothly and quickly? Disciplining the hand with finger
exercised brings greater dexterity.

Interpretive dance is a dance style that seeks to interpret the meaning
inherent in music rather than by performing specific preformatted moves, it
seeks to depict emotions or tell a story. To worship God in dance is
biblical. The Bible commends it (Psalm 149:3; 150:4). Scripture gives
many references to the use of dance as a form of joyous celebration and
of reverent worship. This should be the theme of ALL dance
performances.
What judges want:
1. Creative and age-appropriate choreography
2. Good clean technique
3. Stage presence
4. Well-rehearsed choreography
5. Dancers who are comfortable with all elements of the number
6. Clean numbers with choreography that is well suited for the dancers
7. Original ideas
8. A clean professional look onstage: good costume, hair and makeup
9. Technique: Make sure that you do not give them any reason to deduct
points.
10. The human quality: They are looking for real people with real
emotions.

Public Speaking
CATEGORY CLASSIFICATION
C. SUGGESTIONS FOR ENTRIES
The key word is convincing, in persuasive speaking. Whether you are
exhorting or presenting an oral argument, your job is to convince the judges
and congregation that these are your words, thoughts and feelings. Many
factors contribute to successful speaking: gestures, posture, voice inflection
and emotion. Be careful. Emotion should be carefully balanced. If you portray
too little emotion, your performance will appear rigid, bland and colorless. If
you portray too much, you will appear harsh and overbearing. Be careful that
your emotion does not detract from your speaking.
1. Your first element of public speaking is to develop a good outline. This is
the heart of the presentation, and since you must keep to the outline, you
will want to make it work for you. Talk with your pastor, youth pastor or
teacher about outlining. Your outline should flow freely from your subject
and text (if used.)
2. Have someone evaluate your presentation. Have them use the
suggestions below.
3. Loudness and fast speaking are not always best. Blend the presentation
with short thought-provoking sentences.
4. Be relevant in your presentation. Use current statistics from newspapers,
almanacs, internet, etc. Remember to document your information.
5. Be sure the message is scriptural and leads the hearer to an appropriate
decision about the Christian walk.
6. Be sure the presentation is no longer than 5 minutes. 30 points will be
deducted from your overall score if you go over.

C. SUGGESTIONS FOR ENTRIES
Film-making is the art of visual storytelling on screen. It has become the
most significant art form of our generation. Therefore, it is important that
the short film be organized, creative in cinematography, editing, and
finally, convey a valued message. To create a good short film, study
storytelling from movies, TV shows, and commercials. Watch carefully
how different camera angles are used, along with mixing music, sound
effects, and dialogue. Sound tracks can set the mood for your film.
A scene of a guy sleeping on a couch can be shot at a tilted angle with
eerie background music, making the audience feel fear (like there’s
someone in the room). The same scene can be shot with high energy
music and an aerial view angle, and completely change the mood.
Cinematography and sound design play an important role in storytelling. It
is also important that the primary objective is ministry, not just to entertain.
Seek to be creative in your presentation.

B. JUDGING CRITERIA
Christian Rap:
1. Rap is an expressive art form. It is a rapidly growing genre in Christian
music today, and its foundation derives from personal experience. Most
rappers write their own music, whereas in normal genres, you are
recognized for your voice, not songwriting. For this reason, rappers are
judged and respected by their degree of lyricism, or ability to use common
forms of literacy (similes, metaphors, alliteration, etc.) and ability to move
a crowd. These are the two principle areas for the judging criteria.
